How are you folks in Springfield doing with this weather? We are expecting 2 ft here in Maine.

A friend an hour from Springfield says he has over a foot and is snowed in.

A high of 63 today, little gloomy but the sun broke through in the after noon, I took my hoody off because I got a little warm.

My parents live about 30 minutes outside of Springfield and already have two-foot snowdrifts around their property.  So yeah, fun.

Seven inches in upstate NY, and we're expecting a foot again tomorrow.
Good news? The governor may declare a state of emergency and have all nonessential stateworkers stay home.
Bad news? The call center I work in might be temporarily picked to be 'essential' while we man all the emergency lines.  :-[

Here in Arizona we're hoping California slides into the ocean, so that (per Bill Hicks) we all end up with a nice little bit of beach-side property on a place called Arizona Bay.

I live in an apartment and therefore have no snow shovel, so I am using some kitchen pots to move the snow. I either look crazy or poor.
I'm from Alaska. About Fifty miles south of Ankorage there's a little fishing town, maybe you've heard of it, it's called fuck your momma.

Why can't it be both?

I lived through one east-coast winter back in the late 90s and lets just say that I was happy that California didn't have any Decembers like that when I was growing up...

Yeah, California might slide into the ocean one of these days, but at least its a beautiful, sunny 74 degrees much of the year. If 36 years of mostly beautiful weather means losing my life, well, fuck me, I'm a pragmatist. I reject a foot and a half of snow as completely impractical to my own continued existence!

Hope you RPPRs are staying safe and staying warm.

Today seems like a good opportunity to put on your skis and slalom down the streets of Springfield!

I'm going to pile onto the a-hole wagon.  While you guys are under several feet of snow tonight, I will be in Cali, on my balcony, in boards and and wife-beater, grilling thresher shark steaks drizziled with a miso-citrus glaze on cedar planks....watching the weather coverage of you guys on CNN.
